I think this is less of a problem that it might seem at first glance. To
begin with, there are not that many dictionaries which have active
competing teams. Even en-GB (where you might expect a flurry of
competition) only has a single maintainer.
will not and can not be resolved.
Who's dictionary to include to that single repository, how to merge
them, how to resolve different concepts (what to include, what to
exclude), how to merge affix files with different affix classes (that
will be a mess). Why you think that included dictionary is 'standard'
and is better then the other one? How to introduce those guys not
knowing each other? The other guy will give up his work? Who will hunt
all those 'other' guys telling them 'Yo, dude, leave that, do this shit!'
How will such a repository resolve competition between two English
First I think you gather in all those projects willing to participate,
then you rescue the dead ones and then you try and work out arrangements
with competing dictionaries. I don't see a reason which such a resource
could not host multiple dictionaries for the same locale, even if it
somehow selects one for default inclusion. Many locales have pre and
post spelling reform variants anyway so you have to allow for multiples
anyway so if you had 3 competing en-US dictionaries, you just label them
differently if the differences cannot be reconciled.
It won't and that's a good thing, here too many cooks will certainly
spoil the broth
My point: it should be repository for maintaining hunspell's
dictionaries and building extensions for other project - that's fine,
but don't expect it to be lively as Pootle and translations - it's
just not gonna happen, that's not realistic.
No, I think I had thoughts similar to your going through my head but I
think the concept still has legs if we pull together.
Did I get it all wrong?
Hit me hard,
